Explaining the 'Janus v. AFSCME' Case

February 15, 2018
Public SectorThe Role of Unions

Daniel DiSalvo breaks down the wide-reaching implications of the upcoming Supreme Court case, Janus v. AFSCME.

If the court rules in favor of the plaintiff, Mark Janus, an Illinois public worker, he and other non-union members will no longer be forced to pay agency fees. The case will likely have an enormous impact on the future of public unions, the balance of politics, and the fiscal stress on state and local governments.


 

Just how impactful is this upcoming SCOTUS case? The decision can affect 5 million public workers across 22 states including California, Illinois, and New York.
